Spoilt it!

This used to be our favourite tv dinner as it was authentic without being overpowering. Now - its just a mush of sultanas and nuts - authentic biryanis only have a garnish of sultanas but this was full of it. Please change it back to how it was

What have you done??

...to your Chicken Biryani!! I have been buying this for a long time for my partner and he's always enjoyed it, but he was horrified when he ate it this week to find there were nuts and sultanas in it...both of which he hates!!! I've now had to remove it from my shopping list as he says that, unless the biryani goes back to the original recipe then he doesn't want it anymore...such a shame

Waitrose Biriani Ruined

Why have they messed with this perfectly good recipe and Anglicised it by putting nuts and huge hideous sultanas in it. Foul. Won't buy again.

used to be a favourite curry....

....but won't be buying again unless they change back to the old recipe. I didn't like the texture of the rice, the taste is horrid compared to the previous version, the chicken pieces were also very poor quality and why are there now sultanas and nuts in the recipe? Ended up in the bin. All in all not a change for the better. I expect more from Waitrose products but recent changes and "new improved recipes" have not reflected their previous high standards - can't help feeling that more and more of their products look and taste like those of the cheaper supermarkets.

New recipe is nowhere near as nice

The recipe seems to have changed late Sept 2014. I used to like this dish, but the one I had this week is tasteless, with poor quality chicken. Won't be ordering this again, I'm afraid.
